The Encounter Mission 2016 has started

The team of 9 are now in Bungoma, 6 staying in the Bungoma Tourist Hotel and 3 staying at the orphanage in Kipcheria. Tomorrow the work begins with a clergy retreat day and the teachers in St Dorcas School.

Today has been an orientation day and we have all been to Beatrice's shop, 2 supermarkets and a book shop where we bought our writing material suppliers and 10 Bibles in Kiswahili.

Upwards and onwards

Surprisingly no stiffness after my walk on Wednesday. Looking forward to tomorrow when it is Fitbit Goal day and easily surpassing my 10,000 step goal.

I have already planned my next walk for next week which will take in Roots coffee shop, (no cakes only coffee as I need to loose a little bit of weight before the Lyke Wake), part of the Coast to Coast and may even call in at Osmotherley again.

The training has started

I was talked into doing the Lyke Wake Walk by my daughter as she wanted to do it  and so I agreed to do it to raise some funds to take out to Bungoma when we go out on mission there in October this year.
The walk is forty (40) miles and has to be completed in 24 hours, so I have started my training. Today I walked from Ingleby Arncliffe over to Osmotherley and back again. Six miles at 3 miles per hour pace. I will certainly have to up the mileage with only 72 days to go until I start the walk.
